Former steel worker Harry Perkins has, against all the odds, led the Labour Party to a stunning victory at the general election. His manifesto includes the removal of American bases, public control of finance, and the dismantling of the newspaper monopolies. The Establishment is appalled by the prospect, and secretly decides that something must be done. As MI5 conspires with the city and the press barons, Perkins the PM finds himself in a no-holds-barred battle for survival.

Review:

A delicious fantasy... crisply written and the story belts along * Observer * Rattles along with speed and great credibility * The Times * A curious Molotov cocktail * Financial Times * A world of power struggle in Downing Street, Fleet Street, Whitehall and Washington * New Statesman * Compulsive reading * City Limits * A spiffing read... calculated to grip blue-rinsed Conservative ladies and make Socialist eyes pop * People * Chris Mullin's book is the first for some time that I have stayed awake to finish -- Ken Livingstone * Labour Herald * Entertaining to anyone interested in contemporary politics * Glasgow Herald * Entertaining propaganda * Literary Review *
